Check the main ground wire off the battery .
In the 80's they had a problem the wire would rot out turn green on the inside of the jacket . Yet look fine if you looked at the cable not a wire .
The decline is slow you don't notice it you have problems with starters Jump your main ground with a cable to test this .
how fast it turn over did you check the voltage in the battery? if you did check to see if there is spark at the plugs if there is spark check to see if it getting gas if you are getting gas remove a spark plug and check for compression by using a compression tester if you dont have a com/tester stuff something in the spark plug hole and roll ove the engine and it should blow out with force that will hit the hood hard then after checking all of the cylinders and they all seems to have good compression check your spark plugs if they are wet with gas replace them they may be faul out change them and you should be on your way
that advice is true a jump start should give you enough power to start vehicle ,but the real problem might be in the fact that you ran out of fuel and have maybe tripped out a sensor , by all means try the jump start ,make sure the vehicle you use you keep that engine running with a little revving to give a boost to your vehicle, if it still wont start have the OBD codes read and cleared as the gas supply was cut may have a sensor code that will prevent starting
SINCE CAR WONT CRANK. NOW IS THE TIME TO REPLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH KEY LOCK CYLINDER ITS BROKEN THAT WHY THE CAR KEYS WOULDNT TURN OFF CAR.DISCONNECTING BATTERY CABLES WITH CAR RUNNIMG WILL.SHORT OUT ALTERNATOR AND PCM.IF IN CASE YOU HAD TO REMOVE BATTERY CABLE REMOVE THE GROUND NEGATIVE CABLE FIRST.MAKE SURE ALL ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS OFF LIKE RADIO. AC SYSTEM OFF.THIS WILL PREVENT LARGE ELECTRICAL ARC FROM BATTERY THIS IS ONE TIME PROCEDURE IN CASE ENGINE WONT SHUT OFF ITS A GAMBLE BECAUSE IT WILL TAKE OUT ALTERNATOR AND PCM.REPLACE THE SWITCH AND KEY LOCK CYLINDER DONT KEEP STARTING CAR BY DISCONNECTING THE BATTERY CABLE YOU WILL DAMAGE IGNITION ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
check battery cables.make sure they are not loose are or corroded.if battery cables okay.problem could be faulty starter - electronic immobilizer control - ignition switch + check its fuse first.if you disconnect battery cables besure to turn off radio so you wont lose code.
